Fan Girl Friday

October 21, 2011 | Fan Girl Friday

Last month I treated myself to few more Geogette Heyer titles for the Kindle. The e-reader has spoiled me. I actually prefer it to paper books, it’s simply a better way to read. I started the rereading with These Old Shades. A delightful story, full of memorable characters, touching romance, and adventure. Best of all it’s set flawlessly in the regency period and sparkles with Ms. Heyer’s wonderful voice.

    I don’t know… I still love the feel of the book, but the convenience of buying and storing e-books can’t be beaten. The real value of a book or e-book is the content, but still I feel the value is somehow tied into a physical object.

    I think the recent history of the internet is largely the cause of this value perception, with so much value going for free. Free news content, free journalism, free games, but people are coming to terms with real value and are starting to see reason to pay for good stuff.

    The internet is starting to mature into a real place for doing business, and that’s a good thing for everyone, because the quality of content is rising as people actually start making a living from the e-medium.

    So you’re one of the pioneers Evanne, although Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press is not so happy. ;)

    Hi, Paul!

    You speak for many dedicated readers.

    Frankly I was surprised how painless I found the transition to digital ink. After a few weeks of using the ereader I picked up a hardback and found myself seriously irritated by its weight, the harshness of paper and ink, the lack of a built in dictionary and no bookmark!

    Alas, Mr. Gutterberg is beyond human emotions.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful comment. :heart:
